“Loftus-Cheek is making good progress, which is really positive, but nowhere near contention for match play,” he added.
“Other than that, we have a fit squad. Nice selection problems.”
In a typical front three, Tammy Abraham will continue in his striking role, hoping to add to his tally of 14 goals this season.
To the left of Abraham could be Christian Pulisic, who has impressed for the Blues this season despite a rocky start.
